sony MDR-EX37.

 

surprisingly good!

someone else needs to try these to make sure i'm not nuts.

 

They're MUCH bassier than the she3580, and much cleaner at that. TONS of sub bass, with exceptionally clean impact. None of the 10k spike either.

 

build quality is very much like the SHE3580 - very much a $20 IEM, but the sound is definitely not crap.


Not to mention they come with colored sony hybrid tips!

Better bass and overall sound than the FX101 at this point just by comparing them.

Hows the mid bass in comparison?

post #11119 of 26061
I can't quite put my finger on it. It's there, and its good but not forward. The mids are pleasant- male vocals have a warm texture. Highs are definitely not as recessed as some other bass heavy phones, but they're certainly not prominent.

SEND THEM TO ME, I LIVE IN CALI AS WELL!!! ksc75smile.gif

Hahaha. If you're in cupertino, we can arrange something wink.gif. I got these at best-buy after doing a search on my phone to see if i could find any reviews.

 

these are definitely basshead headphones. I hesitate to say much more, but the bass drum on some dave mathew's recording rarely sounds this realistic.

 

Apparently the return policy is 15 days... i'll give them 3 of burn in i think to see where they settle. if the bass gets any heavier, i doubt i'll keep them - might try the clr100 or something.

 

 

going back and forth with the she3580, the philips definitely have more midbass and that annoying treble spike. the sony's have an epic amount of sub-bass + impact in comparison to everything else. Granted my philips are WELL worn in while the sony's have less than 3 hours on them.

 

in comparison to the sony's the fx101 have mid bass + impact, but are also really really sibilant/harsh (though i am sensitive to such things, can't ever listen to the monoprice buds for example).

 

 

by the way, i'm using 'get lucky' by daft punk to test bass and '#41' by dave mathews for everything else.

Danny, 

Have you got a comparison of the Basso/Tenore vs the VSD1 ?

Not enough real advancement in sound to go for them. I would look into the bassos or the CKS99. Both will be better.

Sweetness. S2s in the hishouse!

Darnit =(.  Was eyeing the CKS77X.

 

I'm definitely picking up the carbo basso.

 

Now I'm debating about getting the CKS99 as well.

 

People that have the CKS99, how is the bass?  Just as good as the CKS77?  I love my bass.

post #11125 of 26061

I'm curious how the CKS99 compares to the 1000, considering it's only half the price.

post #11126 of 26061
Quality wise cks99 lows are better than cks77. 99 have glorious balss When needed.

Look in the Tenore/Basso appreciation thread.

I've been trying to play catch up, but it's again becoming difficult.

 

What is the best i can do with $25 so far, out of all the discoveries in the past 8 months?

 

so far i've got:

 

sony xba-1

sony mh1-c

ath ckn-50

ath clr100

ath-cor150

various vsonics

 

What's the best bang for the buck cheapy iem right now?

 

note: i haven't owned a audio technica iem before.

 

I don't know about cheap Audio Technicas or Vsonics but the Green House is far better than the MH1C, it uses a proper Knowles driver after all.

Where'd you quote that from?  Never heard the KSC75's but Titanium sure does sound amazing in Sunrise Audio Feeling II's, I have the Vsonic UU2 and Audio Technica CM770 as well.

I made that mistake by buying the CKM99 instead of the CKM1000.  It was half the price, and sadly half the sound.

No comparison though, bassy and smooth vs. bright and quick.

post #11130 of 26061

Well you're the only guy / gal which bought one so far as far as I know.
